Is It Church Yet?
Rev. Robert Smith, Jr.

I am from a clan of preachers and pastors. I haven't known myself as anything but a preacher.  From the time I was old enough to know what my Daddy was, I have tried to be just that, a preacher. As my eight year old grandson, Joshua would say at age 5 when people would ask if he was going to be a preacher, he would reply, "I've been preaching, I do funerals and everything, I even put one in the ground." So, I've seen the church from the inside out as I tagged onto my father every moment, I possible could, from church meetings to revivals, and today I am 62. So, I have had a long look at what we call church. We encourage you to read this book and see the church as a focus on slavery, civil rights, voting rights, black pride and church productions.  The world is asking and waiting for the church of Matthew 16:18, "And I say unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

Tragedy, Trial, Triumph
Rev. Robert Smith, Jr.

In Tragedy, Trial, Triumph, I hope to encourage every Christian to endure the cycle because it is a cycle and encourage every pastor in transition to new work to be patient and prayerful through the cycle. Time is on your side.  “for they that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength” Isaiah 40:31.  It is true that “All things work together for the good of them that love the Lord” and you can’t have some of all.  So, no matter how it’s looks or hurt, it’s all for your good and you will come out a winner at the finishing line.  You need to know the cycle and more importantly you need to trust God.

In the Shadow of C. L. Franklin
Rev. Robert Smith, Jr.

Many historical personalities have lived in the shadow of great men:  Harry Truman lived in the shadow of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Joseph Lowery in the shadow Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Hank Aaron in the shadow of Babe Ruth.  I can relate to that condition because for over a decade I have ministered “In the shadow of C. L. Franklin.”  This book tells the story of one that came prepared my God to work “In the Shadow.”
